Response to "Be Warned" by phxgreen Jul 10, 2013
After reading phxgreen's review of Oklahoma City, our expectations were low! OKC does not deserve such a scathing review. The city IS laid back; not a lot of traffic...easy to get around via car or on foot. The OKC Bombing Memorial is a must-see. The Myriad Gardens are nice, but the fun, not-to-be-missed area is Bricktown (the entertainment district): neat restaurants, a canal walk, water taxi rides, baseball stadium, movie theatre. Stop at the Visitor's Center at the Cox Convention Center in town at Sheridan and Robinson for a map...there is lots to see and do in OKC.

Needs more Shops. Good places to eat Jul 14, 2009
Bricktown is the revitalized downtown area of OKC. It used to be a rundown warehouse district, and not the best part of town. As part of the renewal the city fathers ripped up part of California Street and turned it into a canal. They very much wanted to emulate San Antonio’s Riverwalk. I haven’t been to San Antonia to compare, but we liked the area. During the day it is not very crowded, at least not during the week when we were there. But, it does get hopping (I have been told) evenings and the weekends.

There are a lot of places to eat, but not many places to shop. The canal is a pleasant experience, with the guide really going out of their way to make things enjoyable and informative. Included in the Bricktown area is ATT Ballpark, where the Redhawks play AAA baseball. When they are in town Bricktown really comes to life.

We parked at the Power Alley garage near the ballpark. $5 for all day. As far as touring Bricktown, half a day will cover it, because of the dearth of places to shop and browse.

Unique May 29, 2008
Bricktown is a section in Oklahoma City that is unique for a downtown area. Located near the Ford Center (OKC's sport venue), Bricktown is home to the Oklahoma City Redhawks baseball team (Texas Ranger AAA affiliate), Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar And Grill," a deluxe movie theater, several of the Oklahoma City's best night clubs and bars, and of course a canal that offers canal boat rides for a fee. The overall landscape is conducive for a fun night on the town for any age. Musicians can be found around the area at venues like the Bricktown Ballroom and during the Christmas season there are horse drawn carriage rides available for hire. There are restaurants to fit any budget, ranging from Sonic to Red Pin, a restaurant where elegance meets bowling (who would have thought?) Overall Bricktown is a rare treat in the middle of a city that is not afforded the usual variety of a larger urban center.
